I just finished making this card for the Card Patterns Sketch #55 using my new goodies from Practicing Creativity. This card took way longer to finish than I was anticipating as I had too many fun options and colour combinations that I could use!
I picked out my all time favourite Cosmo Cricket paper (Early Bird) to go with my new favourite red ribbon (Practicing creativity) and started cutting and shaping that balloon to exactly the way I wanted it. Then I worked everything else around my "masterpiece". The scene is created using the rest of the Look Up set and the sentiment comes from the Everyday Button Bits set from PTI. I love acrylic stamps for the fact that you can distort them to fit your layout. Ideally I should have flipped the sketch so that the sentiment was on the left side and the word 'lift' would be at the top but not much can be done once the card is finished and I had already spent way too much time on it.
This card will be perfect for a friend of mine that is going through of a bit of a rough patch. I think she just needs to be reminded that she has friends.
Thanks for stopping by and have a fantastic weekend.
